Deferred Payment Policy Consultations Tameside Council The Care Act requires local councils to offer a Deferred Payment Scheme as a method of paying for care where it is subject to charging. The policy has been in place since August 2015; however a recent review found that some aspects of the policy require further clarification. We are consulting on a number of amendments to the policy which are proposed to ensure that the policy reflects the duties and responsibilities placed on local councils under the Care Act 2014. 07/05/19 18/06/19

Introducing further advertising restrictions of products high in fat, sugar and salt (HFSS) on TV and online Department of Health and Social Care Childhood obesity is one of the most pressing public health challenges that we face. As part of the Childhood Obesity Plan for Action, the Government set an ambition to reduce the gap in obesity between children from the most and least deprived areas. The Government is concerned that despite existing restrictions, children see a significant level of HFSS adverts through the media they engage with the most and this can shape their choices and over time, lead to obesity. Therefore they are consulting on options across broadcast and online media in order to reduce children’s exposure to HFSS advertising. 18/03/19 10/06/19
